Falun is a small industrial city among the lakes in the centre of Sweden that grew up around the success of its copper mine, which has since closed. The city has a large university and Lugnet, the Swedish national ski stadium. If you hire a car in Falun you can visit the main local attraction, Lake Runn. This is a popular destination among Swedes in summer for water sports and exploring its 5 islands, and in winter for competitive and leisure skating. Drive to Framby Udde Resort for hire equipment or simply watch others in action.
It helps to hire a car in Falun in order to visit the old mining areas. The copper mine has been closed for more than 20 years but the relics of its heyday have been granted World Heritage status. This has become a major attraction with daily-guided tours of what was known as The Great Copper Mountain, including the mine workings and the restored buildings above ground. Elsewhere in the city, don't miss the narrow historic pedestrian city centre including the cobbled town square bordered by an art nouveau mansion, grand red brick church and the 17th-century town hall.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
